Emil Bemstrom
20-Year-Old CenterC
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Snagged in the fourth round in 2017, Bemstrom will get his first taste of North American hockey this season after an outstanding showing last year, when he led the SHL with 23 goals in 47 games as a 19-year-old. The list of teenagers who have put up numbers like that in Sweden's top league is short and impressive, and includes the likes of Peter Forsberg and Elias Pettersson, but Bemstrom's upside probably isn't that high. His skills make him a potentially better version of Oliver Bjorkstrand, as he uses his plus speed and strong skating to find open ice and then uses a quick trigger to beat the goalie. A good campaign in Sweden this year could set him up for a regular shift with Columbus in 2020-21. Read Past Outlooks

Grabs first NHL point
CColumbus Blue Jackets
October 8, 2019
Bemstrom picked up a power-play assist in Monday's overtime win over the Sabres.
ANALYSIS
His first NHL point came when the puck deflected into the air and off his face before landing in front of Nick Foligno, who fired it home. Bemstrom isn't seeing much ice time so far, either at even strength or with the man advantage, but the rookie could grow into a bigger role if he can earn the trust of coach John Tortorella.
